My French improved dramatically and the time spent in the lab really prepared me well for my final-year project…even if it was challenging at times, I would definitely recommend the course…and revision is a lot less painful when you’re on the beach and it’s 30 ºC!”

Placements in Europe (studying in English)

Should you like the idea of experiencing life in a European country but are a little daunted by the thought of studying Chemistry in a second language then you could opt to study in English at one of our partner institutions in Finland (University of Helsinki ) and Sweden (Uppsala University). Students on these placements pay reduced tuition fees whilst on their year out and may be eligible to apply for an award from the EU Erasmus Programme to assist with living costs. Fee information and further clarification is available on the University fees and funding page.

Placements further afield (studying in English)

Studying abroad at an English-speaking university outside of the EU is increasingly popular.

International placements, such as these, are organised by the University’s International Relations Office and it is also possible for placements to be arranged at over 50 destinations worldwide.

I chose to come to Birmingham because this course allowed me to spend a year studying in Australia.
